    Closure

    Honestly, I logged in to delete this account, but I saw waiting, unread PMs notifications, and as a human being, I glanced. And the previews I glanced over made me decide otherwise.

    I wish all of you well. May you all find joy. I am happy to say I have found mine. I am writing again after years of having a PTSD reaction to just opening a word document. On another site, in another fandom.

    Time moves so quickly and so slowly that it baffles me. The calendar is approaching my veritable D-day anniversary; it's almost been a year since something happened that broke me into so many pieces that I didn't think I could be put back together again.

    "State of the Author"

    You're a world away
    Somewhere in the crowd
    In a foreign place
    Are you happy now?

    TL;DR: I am not dead, but I'm not active right now, either.

    🎶 Add a little sugar, they say
    Be a little sweeter, they say
    Gotta give and take, but I say
    This time it's my way, ah, my way

    I'll do me
    You do you
    I don't need nobody's permission
    I won't back down
    Win or lose 🎶

    I'm disabling comments on all of my stories—past, present, and future.

First ever Q&B writing contest! · 5:54pm Jul 8th, 2018

So, because I made a joke, Anzel and I are now hosting a writing contest for Q&B fans. (and, well, non-fans as well! anyone can participate!) A quick overview of the contest:

  • 3,000 words or less
  • Six prompts to choose from
  • Write about a Q&B character OR your own original character!
  • Deadline is September 1
  • Submissions are anonymous
  • We will each pick two favorites, and then the Q&B community will vote on their favorite of the four!

If you're interested, head on over to our site to see the details & submission form.

I've always been hesitant to host a contest. Why would anyone want to participate? How could I possibly judge others' works? Any time someone's brought it up, I shied away and shrugged it off.

Then... a friend complained about having too many contests they were writing for, I joked that we were announcing a Q&B contest, and a group of friends present in the chat seemed excited by the idea.

So, here we are. Hosting a contest. I hope this is a good idea and everyone who participates has fun!

You know I'll be all over this.

No! Bad! I just started mulling over an idea for an ongoing contest! I don’t need another one to worry about! D:

I think I’ll actually participate in this. Maybe doing this will give me the muse I need to write a story that isn’t action-packed and full of science fiction...

Sounds exciting!

Whoop whoop! I needed motivation and here it is!
